    The link worked for me. If the items are as described, then the price is good. Even the buy it now. I referenced the listing against a few brokers I know of and they all agree. Good luck!

    I wouldn't get that one for a few reasons.

    1) You can't see the camera in person
    2) It's in taiwan
    3) I saw a used hassy in person with same lens for 700 canadian recently

    But if you're not willing to wait, it might be good.

    it's def. a good price, all seems to be fine, even a B+W filter. the Taiwan question is hard but I think that not all sellers from foreign countries are thiefs and stuff.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    It would be a little uncomfortable with the seller small sales history. Also none of the previous sales are of camera equipment. I have bought for first time sellers but they where both pro photographers.

    It seems good to me. Though, what I've seen on Ebay, the 500cm with a 80mm CF lens and A12 back usually goes for no more than $1,000. I'd say $800-900 usually.

    You really might want to consider saving up for the 503CW. In case you want to add a TTL metered flash later on.

    Also, for the same price you are planning on spending, I'd even consider the Mamiya RZ67 or RB67 cameras. I honestly think the glass on those cameras (well, the modern lenses) are just as good as the Zeiss lenses on the Hassie. Not as portable though.
